    Posting Your Email Address

    There's been a recent uptick in posts containing email addresses, so although these warnings have been posted before, it appears to be a good time to repeat them.

    Do Not Post Your Email Address

    on this Forum, in the Forum Classifieds, or anywhere else on the open Internet.

    Automated programs, called Bots, routinely scan this site, and others on the Internet, harvesting email addresses for use by spammers and hackers. These evil doers use your email address to fill your inbox with spam or in a scheme to steal your identity or to defraud you or others. And the worst part is that your email address will be discoverable for these nefarious purposes for as long as that information can be found on the Internet.

    There is No Need To Post Your Email Address On This Forum

    People can contact you through this forum by Private Message. You can opt to receive a notification via email from the Forum when you receive a new Private Message. You can customize these settings by clicking the Settings link at the top of the page and clicking General Settings in the left side-bar on the Settings page.


    Wait! Won't my email address be visible to Bots if I enable contact by email in my Settings?

    No. Your email address is private and cannot be viewed by others.

    In general, it's a bad idea to post information that can be easily used to violate your privacy or compromise your identity. Your email address is such information. Friendly moderators here will often delete email addresses from this site, but you should be self-reliant when it comes to protecting your security.
